Why You Need to Know About the Slow Down & Move Over Laws

There is a set of laws in most of North America, and all of the United States called the 'Slow Down & Move Over Laws' that have been put into place around 2007, depending on the state. According to polls done by Mason Dixon Polling & Research as well as the National Safety Commission, 71% of Americans don't know about these laws.

The laws were put in place to offer some additional safety for emergency service workers as well as municipal roadside workers and tow-truck operators. The slowdown & move over laws is the same in every state with almost no variance other than consequences for breaking this law. To explain the law briefly, whenever you see an emergency service worker, such as an ambulance or police officer on the roadside doing their jobs, you must reduce the speed of your vehicle and move over into a lane further from the side of the road they are on if possible.

With the awareness of these laws so low, everyone here at McLaren Scottsdale wants to help spread the knowledge and remember to drive safely.
